    1. How many followers is a normal amount of followers to gain after posting chapter 1 of your story?

      Hiya, as the title suggests, I'm just wondering what's a normal amount of followers gained a day after you first post your story. It's been so long for me that I've completely forgotten lol

      While I do appreciate the good intention behind the words...  I can't help but see a lot of Survivorship bias behind them.  Plenty of people are doing or have done the same exact things...  And, (...)

      Also, I mentioned a bunch of big authors in this post, but also quick shoutout to TheFirstDefier of Defiance of the Fall for being the one who motivated me to start Salvos. I forgot what it was, but he (...)

      Hello, I am MelasD, author of a few stories like Salvos, Melas, and Tian.  You may or may not have heard of my fics. It doesn't particularly matter. But I'd just like to share the story. It's a bit... (...)


    8. Re: The Blue Box Is A Trap

      Is this just going to be a meme thread? Because if it is, I'm going to grab my popcorn and watch. 


    9. Re: The Blue Box Is A Trap

      If you are an author and are considering writing on RoyalRoad, please I implore you, either don't use LitRPG as a genre, or simply be careful to not make power the goal for your main character If (...)


    10. Re: Best Rated's front page should show top 10 not just top 5.

      Just write gimmick clickbait stories or nerdy MC power trips, that's all that can survive 0.5 jail or latest updates jail on this site  I actually tested it out with breaker of skulls, wrote my (...)

    12. Re: New feature: Adding Collaborators

      To add to the above thoughts, we also wanted to provide a way for larger authors to assign moderators who can sift through and moderate the comments section, since sometimes it grows far too large (...)


    13. Re: Best Rated's front page should show top 10 not just top 5.

      Also, this isn't really a suggestion for the site or anything, but mostly a call to action for other authors: Shoutouts should be normalized. Get your readers to support other authors you know or even (...)


    14. Best Rated's front page should show top 10 not just top 5.

      This isn't anything I'll stand to benefit from, so I'm making this suggestion without any biases behind it.  The front page of Best Rated shows far too few fictions. It should show either the top 7 (...)


    15. Re: Any forum writers want to race with me? 10 day to make a FAST FOOD frontpage story!

      So, there are a few different ways for you to appear on the front page. Rising Stars, Popular This Week, Best Rated, and Top Reviews, with diminishing exposure in that exact order (i.e. being on the front (...)


    16. Re: What's Your Marketing Strategy?

      Personally, I believe the best marketing strategy is frequent posting. 


    17. Re: Just hit 10,000 followers for Salvos! Offering shoutouts to celebrate!

      Congratulations Melas! Well deserved. Thank you. Also, read Wizard's Tower.


    18. Re: Just hit 10,000 followers for Salvos! Offering shoutouts to celebrate!

      Also, no clue why people are thinking this is a raffle lol  I'm shouting out everyone in this thread who asks for one.


    19. Re: Just hit 10,000 followers for Salvos! Offering shoutouts to celebrate!

      I'm here to start drama and complain because the author vehemently refused to shout out Melas because it was 'meh,' 'not that good of a story,' and 'no shouty.' Also, he said read Lost In Translation (...)
